we talk. this is interesting. because the obama administration put a lot of pressure on prime minister netanyahu of israel he said, you, mr. prime minister, have to agree to release over 1,000 murderous thugs, including murderers who murdered an american, before the palestinians will come to the table to negotiate with you on the israeli-palestinian conflict. that was our president who put pressure on the prime minister. you've got to release thugs in order to negotiate. we would put that kind of pressure on israel and we wouldn't put that kind of pressure on iran? you see, that's why, mr. speaker, i ask the question -- did the negotiators forget which nation they were negotiating for? because it looks to me like the score is pretty clear. united states zero, iran made out on the deal. the sad thing about that final score, and let's hope it's not the final score, is that again, the hinge of history turns. and if you have an iran with a nuclear weapon, it won't be just iran. you will explode proliferation, saudi arabia will have a nuclear weapon, egypt will have a nuclear weapo

the pacific. how concerned are you about the this especially for drug interdiction. is it something you talked about with president obama today? we value extreme lit help the u.s. has give us. colombia has been extremely useful. i say not because of the quantity. when you add up what colombia has given us versus what we have had to invest ourselves. it's very small percentage. the quality of that help in terms of intelligence, practical ways to be more effective in, for example, the fight against drug trafficking has been very useful. it's knowledge we have already acquired. and as i mentioned, it's a knowledge we are sharing with other countries. and in a way what we doing with the u.s. is lowering the cost and expanding and strengthening the results through what you would say a proxy procedure where by colombia is -- the help of the u.s. and in that case you can make the resources much more efficient. >> is the u.s. going in the right direction by evolving from security aid to economic development? health and what more should the u.s. be doing? >> well, i think they are going in the right di
